Trojan:Win32/Gatak problems.

Recommended Posts

Hii! Today I downloaded a malicious virus which I assumed would be a false positive, until later today my scroll bar was going up in every possible program and software (I had to unplug my mosue and keyboard, and it kept scrolling up)

I tried to scan with my malwarebytes, but the scan kept being canceled so I had to go through safe mode and deal with it from there.


I have scanned my pc first with Windows Defender, and it detected the Trojan:Win32/Gatak virus and deleted it immediately. 


I have heard that it is an stubborn backdoor trojan, and from experience, I had a very stubborn virus like bitcoin miner, and I had weeks of scans and I couldnt get rid out of it.

Did anyone ever hear of the Gatak trojan? is it really dangerous? it is easy to get rid of, or it creates a lot of hiding holes and I'd be better off if I had my system formatted?


After the scan with Defender, I ran a scan with malwarebytes, and it brought no results.  

I ran a scan with tdsskiller, no resultes.

A scan with hitmanpro, I got only tracking cookies resultes, but no threats.


I did a scan with roughkiller, and I got those :



I did a run with ADW cleaner and I got these:



I ran Junkware removal, and I had accidently some of the lines above the previous scans removed...




Should I bail out or its possible to save my system from the forces of evil?

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll try to help your with your issue.

Before we start please read and note the following:

  • We're primarily oriented on malware removal here, so you must know that some issues just cannot be solved and you must be prepared for this. Some tools we use here will remove your browser search history, so backup your important links and all the files whose loss is unacceptable.
  • Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
  • Please be patient. I know it is frustrating when your PC isn't working properly, but malware removal takes time. Keep in mind that private life gets in the way too. Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a More reply options button, that gives you Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Always execute my instructions in given order. If for some reason you cannot completely follow one instruction, inform me about that.
  • Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything not covered in my instructions happens, please stop and inform me!

:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
